• Which word is correct?

    Best answer: "I saw the two boys streak down the road on their bicycles." That is how I would say it in Britain. Americans etc might have different ideas. Actually I would more likely use "streaking" rather than "streak". But however you want to form the start the sentence, you must use "on... show more
    Best answer: "I saw the two boys streak down the road on their bicycles." That is how I would say it in Britain. Americans etc might have different ideas. Actually I would more likely use "streaking" rather than "streak".

    But however you want to form the start the sentence, you must use "on their bicycles". The notion of "each on a bicycle" looks simply comical - no native speaker would use that form. I note that others support "each on a bicycle" but that form seems so false to me in Britain, if you were reporting an incident to the police etc.

  • Is this sentence grammatically?

    Best answer: It's very grammatically. Or grammatical, as some people say. Seriously, it is grammatical and in fact a good example of the rarely used future perfect progressive.

    Best answer: It's very grammatically. Or grammatical, as some people say.

    Seriously, it is grammatical and in fact a good example of the rarely used future perfect progressive.

    For those who don't understand, if the speaker was speaking 24 hours later, he or she would say "they have been flying for a few hours.' Since it's in the future, it's "they will have been flying for a few hours."

    It might be a bit easier and more understandable to put "by this time tomorrow" at the beginning of the sentence.

  • What words rhyme with Orange??

    Best answer: I once had wondered what other word rhymes with the word orange as well.

    Orange has almost no perfect rhymes. The only word in the 20-volume historical Oxford English Dictionary that rhymes with orange is sporange, a very rare alternative form of sporangium (a botanical term for a part of a fern or similar plant).

  • Is "piss" a curse word?

    Hope that helps.
